Paper Abstract

Lead phosphate glasses containing rare earth ions were prepared in a glow box in order to minimize concentration of hydroxyl groups. Rare earths as an optically active ions were limited to Eu3+, Dy3+, Tb3+ and Er3+. Luminescence of rare earth ions in lead phosphate glasses was registered in visible spectral region. Luminescence bands correspond to 5D0 - 7FJ(J = 0 ÷ 4) transitions of Eu3+ ions, 4F9/2 - 6HJ/2 (J = 11, 13, 15) transitions of Dy3+ ions, 5D3 - 7FJ' (J' = 1 ÷ 6) and 5D4 - 7FJ (J = 3 ÷ 6) transitions of Tb3+ ions, and 4S3/2 - 4I15/2 transitions of Er3+ ions, respectively. Luminescence decays from excited states of rare earth ions have been analyzed in details.
